is an aviation expert and former managing director of the ntsb. great to have the back of the show. in this case, no news is bad news really because it means we are no closer to figuring a what the problem is. so they're no closer to getting a split back in the air, right? >> you're absolutely correct. the announcement this morning from the transport ministry in japan was bad news. as was the press conference on friday by the ntsb where the chairman of the ntsb, did the herdsman's said, this was a safety flight issue. that is a very tough language and a phrase that is used that means that had the plane been in the air this could have caused some real problems, and the plan will not go back and tell they have cut this off completely. melissa: what about these reports we're hearing now that japan eased safety standards in order -- this seems like you would guess that it was in order to be a manufacturer of this plan or make it easier to get that contract in the country. what you make of that? >> there have been broader questions raised about the whole certification of this aircraft. when this airc
with our partners at the ntsb, the japanese authorities and the boeing company to try to focus on what has caused these and once we have a better understanding of the cause we are going to take appropriate action. >> regulators at the u.s. federal aviation administration grounded all 787s there last week following the emergency landing of an ana flight in western japan. they say it was because of the risk of in-flight battery fires. meanwhile, the u.s. national transportation safety board has released its latest findings. inspectors are looking at earlier problems with a 787 operated by japan's other major carrier jal. that plane's battery is where a fire believed to have started eight individual lithium ion cells. each cell had a different level of damage but they aren't speculating on what this might mean for their investigation. ntsb chairman debra hurstman is scheduled to provide a comprehensive update later on thursday in her first news conference on the dreamliner problems. >>> a government spokesperson says japan will likely revise its target for cutting greenhouse gas emissions. he
, isn't it? >> yeah, bill, still got more questions than answers at this point and today the ntsb fang out around the country and the globe trying to get more answers. in tucson, arizona, ntsb along with members of boeing were down at a company called secure a plane. owned by its corporate plane out of london. they make chaernlgs for the lithium batteries down there doing some tests. the ntsb with boeing investigators out in everett, washington, where they make the dreamliner. they have hundreds of employees at boeing in everett working on the 878 problem, and they are in teams trying to do what you would want to do here, do a test. try to figure out if there's some common theme here. and finally in japan, japanese investigators, along with investigators from the ntsb, they are looking at the battery from the ana dreamliner, the ntsb said that battery was ore charged, different than what was said about boston taking a look at boeing since the incident on boston on january 7th. still more questions than dreamliners. >> you know the ceo of the company has to be saying what's next? >> so
that the ntsb will probably take a look at all these electrical issues and try to determine if there is some sort of pattern. >> reporter: that is exactly what is going on. n.t.s.b. has launched an investigation into the airworthyness of the 787, three of their investigators are joined by experts from boeing, japan airlines and faa. the big gamble for the dream liner has yet to pay off, after selling 800 planes, they have cost overruns and quality issues. it could be years before the plane turns a profit. the stock is taking a hit. down more than 3% since the fire yesterday. >> neil: dan just hit on it. this plane is supposed to be the next big thing. more than 800 have been ordered. to industry expert, how serious this is, should we worry? >> we should worry and boeing should worry. but the ntsb is investigating but we have a split problem here. before they start delivery of the plane to customers, you expect some problems but once in the aircraft are in the hands of customers and there are 47 out there now, there have been a number of problems more than what you would usually expect. the f
further. i have had people saying what are they doing at boeing? are they working with the ntsb? a lot of it is centered around the everett factory, where the dreamliner is built they are out there doing tests, working in teams. i'm told it's hundreds of employees working on this 787 problem. they're not in one central location, but spread out throughout the boeing facility. boeing is tapping a number of areas for expertise. as for the ceo, he is involved frequently in the updates going on within the company. he's taking part in daily meetings on the latest findings. this is the biggest test of his ten year and ceo of boeing. what are we seeing in terms of the investigations involving government agencies? investigators are talking with suppliers, some in japan, some in arizona and england. there are suppliers around the world. the jtsb and ntsb are pursuing two different theories. as you look at shares of boeing which are under pressure, the jtsb says the ana plane did receive an overcharge, the battery. the ntsb in boston says, no, that didn't happen. there was not an overcharge invol

ntsb managing director has been following this story with us since the start and he is back now with this latest development. peter, i want to you to put your ntsb hat back on for a second here. if you find out that they knew that they had 10 batteries that had problems, that japanese airline told them they had to replace 10 batteries did they do something wrong by not disclosing it or by not addressing the problem right there? >> well here's the issue. it is not just 10 batteries. that is 10 batteries from one of the airlines the second airline using the japanese airline, using the dreamliner also had problems. they were not required to turn these events over to the regulator in japan or in the u.s. we have pages of regulations. this was seen as kind of a minor or normal maintenance issue. the real question is, both airliners reported their problems to boeing. they said we had to change out, in one case 10 batteries. in another case we don't know how many. the question is, whether boeing was connecting the dots. whether they saw that there was a problem brewing with these batte
and the ntsb arrived in western japan early this morning. nearly all of the 787s in use around the world have been grounded because of safety concerns. there have been several recent incidents including a battery fire, a wiring problem and an issue with a brake computer. boeing is proposing a series of safety measures to address the problems. >>> toyota settled the first of several lawsuits. the automaker reached a deal on a suit filed by the families of two people who were killed when their camry slammed into a wall in utah in 2010. neither side is disclosing the temps of the settlement. toyota is facing hundreds of other lawsuits stemming from accelerator and brake problems triggering recalls of more than 14 million vehicles. >>> today a former d.c. power plant will be auctioned off. the hope being that it might be redeveloped. online bidding begins today for the site of the west heating plant on 29th street in georgetown. some believe the two-acre site could be repurposed for commercial redevelopment. the plant served as a heating source for government facilities from 1948 until it closed

happened midnight and the other on an empty plane in boston. no one was hurt. the ntsb said the battery had a short circuit and uncontrolled chemical reaction. what they don't know is why. >> what i can tell you is we have all hands on deck. we are working as hard as we can to identify what the failure is and what corrective actions need to be taken. >> the ntsb says it is coordinating its investigation with its japanese counter part. >> develops news, officials just spoke out about a shooting that injured two students. ktvu's jade hernandez is talking to them and will join us with the latest on what may have happened before the shots were fired. >> and a simple solution, the life saving role this market is playing in one bay area neighborhood.
boeing's dreamliner battery nightmare. ntsb chairwoman deborah herstman highlighting the gravity of the problem. >> the expectation in aviation is to never experience a fire on board an aircraft. >> reporter: but that is exactly what happened last week when an overheated battery forceed a 787 dreamliner to make an emergency landing in japan. just one week earlier, another fire on a dreamliner in boston. while the ntsb isn't sure yet if it is the cause, they are point tying chemical reaction which overheats the battery. >> there are multiple systems to protect against a battery event like this. those systems did not work as intended. we need to understand why. >> reporter: boeing said it welcomed progress in the investigation and continues to work with investigators both in the u.s. and japan. transportation secretary ray lahood says there is a lot to do before the plane can be returned to service. >> disclose everything that is brought out in the top to bottom review. there will be total transparency. >> the same type of battery used in boeing's dreamliner jet once burned a whole
, the faa and ntsb, they all have investigators heading to japan to investigate what happened with that emergency landing. meanwhile, other airlines, which have already taken delivery, they are still flying the dreamliner. this is out of poland making its inaugural flight of the 787. right now, as we speak, maria, in a couple hours. it will be touching down here in chicago. despite airlines saying we're still going to fly, it s & p capital iq downgrading shares of boeing on the concern, maria, that eventually we could see some airline customers saying, you know what, putting me on the dreamliner, i'm skipping that flight so that's the latest of what's happening with boeing. maria? >> want to bring in a couple other voices, michael boyd, aviation expert and on the telephone jim hall, former ntsb chairman, now managing director of hall & associates. good to see everybody. thanks for joining us. would you fly a dreamliner right now? mean, knowing what we know, jim hall, would you -- what would you job advice? >> oh, yes, i would fly the aircraft. i think if there are significant
century. boeing and the ntsb took this battery apart. there's eight cells in each battery. they took every cell apart. they are inspecting every piece of that battery with microscopes. everybody is working hard to try and find out what the problem is. now, it's a big problem. this is a big problem for boeing and it's a big problem for the airlines. >> jonathan, you know, you got, again, this becomes an airplane problem. this is no longer just a public relations problem. besides this battery issue, might have been your notes, you got brake problems and fuel line problems. so this looks like a big mess to me now. you're in the public relations business. what do you think boeing ought to be doing or saying because they are not doing it and saying it. >> well -- >> go ahead, bob. >> go ahead, jonathan. you go ahead. >> again you got it right. it's not a battery problem or a brake problem or that they built these planes partly out of plastic. they have a reputation problem. this plane has been a problem for boeing for a couple of years. when we're told this is part of the growing up process and
. clearly that's not happening today. with regard to the incident yet. ntsb tells me they expect to have an update on that investigation later today. we were talking with airlines earlier today and they said, listen, dreamliner flights have continued as scheduled. we know there's an issue with the one that was just about to take off from boston. take a look at the number of issues we've seen with the dreamliner over the last month of remember, it was just at the beginning of november that united did the first domestic flight for the dreamliner. highly regarded flight, got a lot of attention. a month later an emergency landing in new orleans after reporting mechanical problems. a few days after that, cutr air had to ground 787 jets due to what they say was a faulty generator. united grounding four due to an electrical planl panel and a fire in boston. there's a lot of headline risk right now. >> they have confirmed it is a 787. i don't know if we still have that live shot available but let's put it up while we talk about this. there you go, logan airport. what do they have to do? they hav
, like the one that caught fire in boston, is a concern. the ntsb is looking at that very carefully because they could be tough customers. >> the markets are already unhappy. how big of a problem is this for boeing? >> it is a bump in the road. but if they come up with another problem, they will take another hit, probably a tougher one. >>> haiti, tomorrow marks three years since a powerful earthquake devastated the country. more than 200,000 people were killed, many more are still living in tent cities. jonathan was there on that fateful day and has written a book documenting the struggle to recover. >> i heard this rumbling outside, and then the bed began to shake and the floor began to shake and the whole house started falling down around me. my name is jonathan katz. i was the associated press correspondent in haiti from 2007 to 2011, which included the afternoon of january 122010, when at 4:53 in the afternoon a massive earthquake struck and destroyed most of the country's capital, including the house that i was in. i have written a book about how the world came to save haiti a
2011. now some question how safe is the 787. >> it is something the ntsb will take a very careful look at. if you're looking at things like the brakes, boeing did revamped its software system in november. it would be troubling if it turns out to be a similar issue, because that was a challenging fix. >> going can at least draw comfort from one of the words of their biggest customers. qatar airways and dismissed the issue as easy problems. there are still plenty of fans. bbc news, new york. >> tonight, the white house has confirmed that labor secretary bill so this -- hilda solis is resigning. this at the time that president obama has picked jack lew to replace tim geithner as treasury secretary. whoever runs the jaret -- the treasury has a critical job. so far, 2013 has been marked by fighting over the fiscal could. but americans say they are looking for solutions, decisions. we have the ceo of accounting giant duch joining me from -- deloit joining me from new york. what would your message be to the new secretary, jack lew? >> my message to jack, as well as what novartis said to the p

on a computer, but i don't think there's fears of safety." still, these glitches are under ntsb investigation. wednesday, after boeing defended the aircraft saying the company has "extreme confidence" in its dreamliner, shares gained 3.2% after dropping more than 4.5% earlier this week. "we think boeing has $15 billion wrapped up in the 787, and they're getting single- digit operating margins on this product." boeing's price is about $200 million per plane. ten airlines have lined up to buy 800 of them. none of them listed here are backing out. so far, the faa has not taken action. "if the faa gets issues that public safety is at risk, you'll see action, but that hasn't happened because these are confined to 'technical issues" and has not crossed over to the issue of safety." another reason airline analysts say cancellations are unlikely is, in part, because the other option for most other airlines, airbus, has a six-year waiting list for aircraft. the aig board of directors decided not to sue the u.s. government over the 2008 bailout. aig nearly collapsed after making huge bets on bad mortga
to the battery used to start the auxiliary power unit, and that they are cooperating with the ntsb in the investigation of the incident. despite bb&t's downgrade, other analysts say the problems have not discouraged investment in the aircraft manufacturer. "i think they've done a good job of handing it. we have them at 73. they've been as high as 77 as low as in the 60's. that's more within the context of where the profitability of the 787 is." dihora says this year, boeing still intends to double monthly production of the 787 to 10 a month. american airlines' board meets today, and it's reported the topic of a possible merger with u.s. airways is on the agenda. interestly enough, shares of u.s. airways have been climbing higher since last thursday. that's when reuters reports the ceo of amr told employees a decision would be made "in a matter of weeks." american has until march to complete its bankruptcy re-organization plan. aig is considering suing the u.s. government for coming to the rescue. the aig board meets today and will consider joining a $25-billion shareholder lawsuit
proven faulty. boeing, the ntsb, and the federal aviation administration are working with electrical suppliers to further investigate the issues. president obama is nominating mary jo white as the next leader for the sec.

"she's a bit of an unknown on wall street. we know she's a tough prosecutor and she's never been in any kind of financial services job. the sec is more than just prosecuting bad people, it's also a regulatory body, about writing regulations, so i think wall street is going to take a wait- and-see attitude." that was james bianco of bianco research. the president also wants richard cordray to continue his role in leading up the consumer financial protection bureau. legislation that would dramatically change america's gun laws is now on the table.
certificate parked. it's from the ntsb and federal aviation administration. the pilot brought the plane down after cockpit instruments indicated smoke and battery related problems. the main battery installed under the cockpit had burned. the official said it may have overheated due to excess current. japanese and u.s. investigators will examine the main battery and surrounding electrical network. they expect a safety switch designed for overheating may have failed. this is the latest in a spate of incidents. >>> japanese transportation officials inspecting boeing dreamliners say they've identified problems with a fuel control system on another plane. the 787 suffered a fuel leak on sunday near tokyo days after a similar incident in boston. in both instances fuel spilled from two nozzles located on the left wing. the devices are meant to release excess fuel from the tanks. in the latest incident, pilots said a display in the cockpit indicated valves adjusting the flow of fuel were closed when they were actually opened. investigators have now identified a defect in the valve system. the system
, is anybody responding to this? >> the n.t.s.b. sent an investigator to japan to work with their officials. remember the ntsb already opened an investigation following the 787 battery fire you mentioned in boston last week. that battery was in the back of the plane. the one that caused the emergency landing in japan was more in front of the dream liner but all of this will be looked at after a comprehensive review of the electrical system. that review was announced last friday. at the time they expressed confidence in the 787 but now, they are apologizing to customers for cancelled flights due to the voluntary grounding of their dream liner. they announced today they did some safety checks and all of their planes are in service. >> clearly, more bad news for boeing. what is the company saying? >> they are very tight-lipped. they released a one line statement they are aware of the issue and working with the airline. they and many aviation experts say, these are teething issue that happens to every new plane. no one has been hurt or killed. last year was the safest year ever in the aviation

from in the ntsb's latest update on the 787 investigation is it looks like the planes will not fly anytime soon. they don't know what caused two batteries to overheat, leading to a fire and emergency landing and the grounding of the fleet of 50 dreamliners in service. they're looking at the battery charger and the electrical system, and so far there's been no smoking gun. >> this is not something we're expecting will be solved overnight. there's a lot of technical work and a lot of complex work to understand. >> i also got word from a source inside boeing that the ntsb is looking at another fire in tucson in 2006 that happened on a plane -- it was during a test when the lithium ion battery exploded and burst into play. boeing says the test was done wrong. the worker who set it up says it was correct, and the batteries were dangerous. he was fired and sued and lost his case. now the feds are reexamining the whole incident. meantime, boeing continues to assemble dreamliners in seattle and south carolina. the problem is what to do with the planes when they're finished. the company did

to get to it on boeing. phil, over to you. >> we've heard from the ntsb, expecting an update from them. they have at least an initial report regarding the fire investigation of that 77 dreamliner in boston yesterday. the ntsb saying that they have decided they are going to send two more investigators to look at the dreamliner in question and that at least initially taking a look at the fire in question they found severe fire damage to the battery of the auxiliary power unit. remember, the auxiliary power unit is what is used to provide power to an airplane when it is parked on the tarmac, not while it's in flight so the battery unit, severe fire kagge there, and it's pretty clear, scott and maria, that we are going to see more airlines, if they haven't already, they are going to start checking their wiring on the battery unit. i just spoke with the folks out of ana in japan. they have a number of dreamliners, checked theirs overnight at the urging of the ministry of transportation in j.i just talked with united airlines. it has checked the battery power wiring on all of its dreamliners
with the latest on this. phil? >> and, bill, got two pieces of news, the first one being that the ntsb completed an update with reporters regarding the ntsb investigation. here's a couple of notes, first of all, they say the battery short circuited and caught on fire but an important point. they are still trying to determine exactly why these batteries caught on fire. the bottom line, this was so serious they had to ground these planes. >> this is an unprecedented event. we are very concerned. as i mentioned in the very beginning, we do not expect to see fire events on board aircrafts. this is a very serious air safety concern the faa has taken. very serious action. >> and regarding those lithium ion batteries, today we spoke with a former worker and whistleblower. this is a supplier to boeing with the 787 dreamliners. they make the charger for the lithium ion batteries. he said he warned his superiors that the batteries were not safe and said the company ignored his warning. just a few minutes ago he described what happened when he saw one of these lithium ion batteries exemployed proceed. >>
